Aug 11 17
Since Richard broke his arm 10 days ago, our planned summer holiday in Norway had to be postponed. Backpacking and sleeping in a tent would not have been a viable proposition at this point.
So, we decided to stay close to home and have a shorter summer break than planned. Nevertheless we have had a great time, catching up with lots of people and spending some time around the house (which is unusual!).
Day 1: Visit to see my parents and Grandfather.
Day 2: Pressure washed the drive(!) and visited friends in Ilkeston.
Day 3: 17 mile run (take a look at for Mark’s GPS track) and visited sister and Brendan in Leicester.
Day 4: Visited friends in Shropshire.
Day 5: Painting and jobs around the house, plus a walk up the local slag heap(!).
Day 6: Visit to see the Staffordshire Hoard in Birmingham and an afternoon with Keith and his garden railway.
Whilst the trains were unable to take us on a trip around the garden, my camera had a nice ride…
So, no great adventures this time, but everything is slightly more ‘adventurous’ with a one-armed husband!
